Paris Hilton was caught on tape in a New York City cab making some pretty derogatory statements about gay men. Radar Online has the audio, recorded by the cab driver, who says he couldn't believe what was coming out of Hilton's mouth. The 31-year-old heiress, speaking to a gay male companion, reacted harshly when he was describing Grindr, an app gay men use to locate other gay men for hookups. "Gay guys are the horniest people in the world," Hilton responds. "They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."

When Radar Online reached out for comment, her spokesman tried to clarify that Hilton's comments were merely to "express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life-threatening disease."

This, of course, isn't the first tape that has gotten Hilton attention—though at least in this one, she seems to have [BLEEP]ed herself.
